Henry Stacy Marks was born in London on 13 September 1829. The son of a coach builder, he studied heraldry painting before attending Leigh’s School, Newman Street (which later became Heatherley’s) and the Royal Academy Schools. Together with P H Calderon, he spent some months of 1852 in Paris studying under François Picot and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In the following year, he began to exhibit at the Royal Academy, and was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1871 and seven years later a Royal Academician. He also became an Associate Member of the Old Watercolour Society in 1871 and a full member in 1883, two years after it became the Royal Society of Painters in Water-Colours.
